No Direct Postings can be made to GL Account in Company Code

Hi SAP Experts,

When we assign a GL to a PR, it gives us an error "No direct postings can be made to G/L account in CoCode." This is because the GL account that we used is recon account for acct type to a vendor. We need to use the GL account. What can we do so that we can use the GL account?

    go to FS00, click on the change button and select the "Create/bank/interest".

    now uncheck the "Post automatically Only" check box ans save.

      i think there is a flaw in the logic you used

      "What I mean is when we make a PR for asset, we put A in the account assignment category, and in the Account Assignment tab, instead of asking for a GL account, it now asks for an asset number, which is connected to the GL account for the asset.

      Maybe it is also the same when we use the GL account for the vendor. Maybe there is also an account assignment category that we can use so that when we go to the Account Assignment tab, it will ask for a vendor number instead of the GL number, where the GL account is connected to the vendor"

      in case of asset the purchase is to the asset. like wise we purchase to inventory ( where the Material GL is derived from automaticl acc assignment ) or we purchase for consumption where the consumption GL is given. but how can you purchase to a vendor ?

      just a thought!!

    Talk with your collegues from finance and do not open it yourself, there may be a valid reason why they have setup it this way, and you may have chosen the wrong account
